More energy-saving LED lamps
Ordinance provides for replacement of incandescent lamps, which cease to exist in Brazil until 2016.Until June 2016, some incandescent bulbs will be out of circulation in Brazil according to the interministerial Ordinance n° 1007/2010, laying down minimum energy efficiency levels for incandescent lamps. These minimum levels will not be met because the technology does not have this and so efficiency incandescent bulbs will no longer circulate in Brazil until 2016. The replacement of these lamps in the country is being done gradually and new technologies are coming to market.
With the objective of contributing to this substitution and encourage the use of economic and sustainable technology, the Group Neoenergia through distributors Coelba, Cosern and Celpe, launched the project of exchange of incandescent and compact fluorescent bulbs, LED in partnership with Philips, the Fletcher Home Center and warehouse. The project is part of the Energy efficiency program of Coelba, Cosern and Celpe regulated by national electric Energy Agency (Aneel).
In Vale do Aço, the volume of sales of LED lamps (meaning led) grew 50 percent in the first half of 2014, compared with the same period last year. Who says Warlington Rodrigues, Manager is a store specializing in electrical and lighting, with subsidiaries in Ipatinga and Timothy.
“People more clarified and that care about the environment are looking to acquire the LED lamps. There is still resistance from some people who believe that the investment in these lamps is higher. The same phenomenon occurred when the compact fluorescents, which came to replace the incandescent commoners Warlington notes.
LED lamps are much more economical. Hence the need to demystify the idea that investment in these models is high. “LED bulbs last an average of 20000 to 50000 hours, depending on the model and how they are used,” according to the expert.
Models and prices
Currently, the price of an LED lamp varies according to model. The Panel light, one of the most simple, costs on average R $15. The price of tubular fluorescent revolves around R $50.The bulb costs about R $60.
As Warlington Rao, the trend is that prices despenquem. “Three months ago, the lamp bulb model was sold by R $118. Today that figure is much smaller. Therefore, the tendency is that the prices of LED bulbs to fall gradually, “designs.
How to use properly?
So that the LED lamps are still cheaper at foodanddrinkjournal, you need to take some care, as alert Warlington Rao. “The LED needs ventilation to dissipate heat. So, it’s not interesting, from an economic point of view, put the lamps in certain light fixtures, such as embedding, for example, “he says.
Also it is not feasible to put LED lamps within luminaires suitable for the floor. In this case, the humidity reduces the useful life of these lamps.
Main advantages of LED lamps:
Are ecologically correct, do you have toxic gases and heavy metals in your composition, unlike fluorescent lamps, mercury;
Do not emit ultraviolet rays;
Are bivolts lamps, that accept a variation of electric current, thus preserving the your life;
Work with 90 volts to 240 volts, having greater resistance to oscillations that occur in electrical current;
Have lower consumption in watts and higher luminous flux, with that it takes less power and automatically pay cheaper in energy bill.
Since July 1, the production, import and sale of incandescent light bulbs of 60w is restricted
60 watt lamp
is a thing of the past
In the process of replacing bulbs ecologically incorrect by the LED of 60 watts are already part of the past. Since July 1, went into effect in the country legislation that restricts the production, import and sale of incandescent bulbs. From 2013, you can’t manufacture or importing incandescent bulbs of 100 watts and 150 and, now, this ban passes to pay also for the more traditional lamp in the household, of 60 W. The regulation on the Interministerial Ordinance n° 1007/2010, Ministry of mines and energy.
On the basis of this Ordinance, the incandescent light bulbs with power of 60 watts still have a one-year survival period that retailers can sell their stocks. The expectation is that trade stocks finish before that deadline.
